- You must attend Volunteer Orientation – Each volunteer attends an hour-long orientation where we provide an overview of our services, philosophies, an introduction to our volunteer program and a tour of the shelter.
- To work with our homeless cats and dogs volunteers must attend training classes – To learn about safety procedures, pet adoptions, animal behavior and Roice-Hurst’s many programs. Volunteers attend a general information lecture based class followed by hands on training.

Transport animals to other shelters/rescues:
Volunteers are needed for transporting animals primarily from Mesa County Animal Services (MCAS) or to other shelters and rescue groups. Some of these transports require out-of-town and/or out-of-state trips. A complete Motor Vehicle Record check and additional training is required. Please contact Nolan for more information, 970-434-7337 ext. 109 or email@example.com.
Our facility is always in need of cleaning, landscaping, and occasional repair and painting.
Here are just a few of the benefits of volunteering:
- Be part of the solution. You’ll join a network of people working to help save the lives of our communities’ homeless dogs and cats.
- Get warm fuzzies. You’ll never find a more grateful and accepting friend than an animal you’ve comforted and helped to find a “Forever Home”.
- Keep good company. You’ll make lots of new friends—and not just the four-legged kind. Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge lifelong friendships.
- Meet the new you. You’ll discover skills you never knew you had, and you may be surprised at what you’re capable of achieving.
- Gain a new career. You’ll learn things that may lead you to the career—or career change—of your dreams. Employers and college admissions officers look favorably on time spent in volunteer service.
